Correction to: Nature Communications, published online 18 April 2023

The original version of this article omitted a reference to previous work in ‘Eger et al. 2022 - Eger, A. M, Bennett, S., Zimmerhackel, J., Rogers, A., Burton, M., Filbee-Dexter, K., Wernberg, T., Gacutan, J., Milligan, B., Vergés, A. (2022) Quantifying the ecosystem services of the Great Southern Reef. Report to the National Environmental Science Program. University of New South Wales. Available at:’and ‘Zimmerhackel et al. 2023 - Zimmerhackel, J. S., Pineiro-Corbeira, C., Norderhaug, K. M., Filbee-Dexter, K., & Wernberg, T. (2023) Dependency of commercial fisheries on kelp forests for valuation of ecosystem services. Working Paper 2302, Agricultural and Resource Economics, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia.’.

These have been added as references 110, 111 at: ‘We accounted for this fact by creating dependency classes for 187 genera of fish and invertebrates, adapted from refs. 110,111’. These references have been added to the reference list.

The original version of this article contained an error in the “Acknowledgements”, which incorrectly omitted the following: ‘A.E., A.V., D.S., and P.M. would also like to acknowledge our continued collaboration with the GEAK network and our valued discussions on how to value ecosystem services in kelp forests. In particular, we thank Johanna Zimmerhackel, Cristina Pineiro-Corbeira, Kjell-Magnus Norderhaug, Karen Filbee-Dexter, and Thomas Wernberg for their thinking and work on fisheries dependencies in kelp forest ecosystems.’

This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the article.
